The Transport 4 All Challenge

The Transport 4 All Challenge

It is a project of the Government of India's Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs.

Aim:

  • To bring cities, citizens, and startups together to create solutions that improve public transportation and better serve the needs of all citizens.
  • Focuses on digital innovation and invites cities, citizens, and innovators to collaborate on developing contextual digital solutions to improve formal and informal public transportation in order to better serve the mobility needs of all citizens.

The Transport4All Digital Innovation Challenge is divided into three stages:

  • Stage I PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION: Cities, with the assistance of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), identify key recurring problems that citizens and public transportation operators face.

  • SOLUTION GENERATION AT STAGE II: Startups create prototypes of solutions to improve public transportation with input from cities and non-governmental organisations.
  • PILOT TESTING AT STAGE III: Cities engage Startups for large-scale pilots and refine solutions based on citizen feedback.

  • The Challenge's solutions aim to integrate formal and informal modes of public transportation wherever possible and desirable.
  • Solutions that demonstrate the ability to meet the needs of citizens—those living in cities with varying contexts—would be tested in a number of cities across the country.
